Write with Hugo House with Arlene Naganawa

Note: This experience has been updated since first published on the website; this WWHH session will be facilitated by Arlene Naganawa.

About Write with Hugo House (in partnership with the Seattle Public Library)

Write with Hugo House is a free drop-in writing circle for all ages and genres of writing. Bring something you’re working on, or just come ready to write. You will have the opportunity to share your work and get feedback—but only if you want to (no pressure). You can also use this time to increase productivity on your current work in progress, surrounded by fellow writers.

The Library fully complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and provides accommodations by request for physical and virtual access to library programs, services, and other needs to ensure these resources are available to people with disabilities. Please contact leap@spl.org, at least 7 calendar days in advance to request an accommodation.
